Potential Spanish Speaking Church Partnership: Dear Boulder Family We want to let everyone know that we have been approached by a local Spanish Speaking church who is looking to rent space for their congregation. The Eldership is discussing the possibilities of this and seeking advice from other local churches who are doing this or have been doing this. On July 1st Preston Pierce, along with David and Laura Manns, attended their services, and Preston shared his thoughts and experience with the congregation on July 15th and this last Sun.
We will be doing our best to keep everyone informed as we progress further along in our discussion with this church and welcome you to ask the leadership questions and share your thoughts and concerns.
